DVD of the Day #119 - Perkins’ 14

When I first saw the list of the “Eight Films to Die For,” Perkins’ 14 was the most interesting to me synopsis wise. The plot is quite unique. Ten years ago a serial killer kidnapped and murdered 14 children in a tiny little town and then disappeared never to be caught.

UNTIL TODAY.

Ten years to the day the killer is brought in on a routine traffice violation, and the chief of police realizes who he is! With the help of another cop, they break into Perkins’ house only to find video tapes of torture, abuse, brainwashing and experimentation. The chief of Police, whose son was one of these kids shoots Perkins in the head right there, killing him instantly. Which is too bad, because it turns out Perkins’ never killed the kids. Instead with a hearty training regiment and a steady diet of PCP and steroids, he turned the kids into ruthless savage emotionless killing machines who will slaughter anything they see except their master…who is now quite dead. Because the cops broke in, the 14 are able to escape into the night and begin commiting genocide. Whoops.

This is an interesting plot, basically featuring psychological zombies, but everything falls apart the second you take the story off paper. For one thing, this film is horribly acted. I mean horrible. Not a single actor is beliveable or even has a glimmer of medocrity. It’s like the movie was filmed using only friends and relatives.

Second, the plot is god awful and every character makes decisions so stupid on a consistent basis you would think everyone in the film was related to pre-island John Locke. The chief of police, who is also the main character, is the worst of the group, as his stupidity defies all odds. Before the release of the 14 he was still obsessed with the “death” of his son, to the point where he neglected his wife, daughter and friends. Then when it turns out he is alive, he goes out of his way to try and “save” his son, to the point where he gets his wife killed and even shoots one of his fellow officers dead so he doesn’t kill his boy. Thankfully he finally gets killed when he tries to hug his son, who has just finished murdering everyone but his daughter…and gets his neck snapped. What a fucking tool. What fucking awful characters.

This is a movie best left on the shelf or better yet, to be forgotten by all who ever heard its name. This ended up tying with Dying Breed for the worst movie of the eight.

Is It Worth Keeping? No.
Rating:2/10
